2009 Honda Fit – initial look

An excellent first look at the 2009 Honda Fit – while, the full details haven’t been released by honda yet, but a bunch of features are known including:

  • Optional satellite navigation system with voice recognition (first time) in its subcompact
  • iPod integration is standard on the Fit Sport.
  • Electronic stability control is optional for 2009
  • Safety features include: advanced airbags, anti-lock brakes, and electronic brake force distribution
  • Engine options include a 1.3 liter i-VTEC, 100 horse-power model with a class leading fuel economy-4.2 liters per 100 kilometers. 
  • The sportier 1.5 liter i-VTEC with 120 horsepower still manages a respectable fuel economy of 5.1 liters per 100 km
  • Transmission choices include a true manual and an automatic with optional steering-mounted paddle shifters. Both the automatic and manual transmissions feature five forward gears.
  • Rim size has been increased to 15-inches for the Fit and 16-inches for the Fit Sport.
It is no Civic but, for the cost and environment conscious, the soon to be released 2009 Honda Fit looks like a nice choice! I am sure it won’t be long at all before there is a myriad of high  performance honda accessories available either!

Sporty little honda!
